Update from Mr Henry- St Andrew’s Academy

Dear Parent/Carer and P7 student,

 We had tried to host a P7 information meeting on Tuesday of this week but, unfortunately, a number of parents/carers were unable to access this event. We had hoped to re-schedule this to Monday coming at 5pm. Despite support from IT colleagues at the council, testing this morning has shown that some people may still not be able to get in on the software systems that are available to us. We would rather not have people trying for a second time to get in and being unsuccessful.

We will record the presentations and make these available to all P7 families next week. We will also provide a way for any families to submit any questions that they have to the school.

I am sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment caused.

Please be assured we will do all that we can to make sure that your child has a successful transition to St Andrew’s.


Kind regards,


Kevin Henry


St Andrew’s Academy

Just a reminder about next week’s Bank Holiday and Inservice Day.

The School will be closed on Monday and reopen on Tuesday.

The Inservice day is on Thursday and the school will be closed to all pupils.

Have a lovely Weekend.

We have made the Inspired Art Exhibition again!!!

Well done to  some of our Primary 4 and 5 children who submitted artwork to their teacher during the school closure.  Everyone’s artwork is being included in this online event.

We received a lovely congratulations video for the team at the Exhibition.

This year’s theme for P4-7 was ‘Fruit and Vegetables’. Have a look at our gallery below to see our entries.

Of course there are always a few stand out pieces of artwork, and so two of  our young artists have been selected to receive a highly commended award.  Well done to Mia and Hannah who received this award!!

Mia P5 – Crying Onion
Hannah P4 – Fruity Animals
